Sony has had a love-in with Facebook for as long as we can remember. Back in 2011, Sony released “Facebook inside Xperia”, to provide a deeply integrated Facebook experience. Since then, Facebook has remained one of those sacred apps that Sony has protected, not allowing you to uninstall the app even if you have no interest in Facebook.
Well it looks like change is afoot as the latest firmware build (17.1.1.A.0.402) for the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet now allows you to uninstall the Facebook app. What we don’t know at this stage is whether this is a one-off for this firmware or whether Sony will allow users to uninstall Facebook for all future firmware versions. Either way, this is great news for the Facebook-haters out there.
On older Xperia firmware, you cannot uninstall the Facebook application
New Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet firmware (17.1.1.A.0.402) allows you to uninstall Facebook
Look – no more Facebook!
